Here’s a suggestion for your Shinko pears next week. They are round pears, originally from Japan, that are great on salads or cheese platters, grilled, roasted, braised or eaten fresh. These crostinis will be great as an appetizer at a Fall dinner gathering. So easy and simple, you could even make them for a midday snack. Recipe and photos from Two Peas & Their Pod.
Grilled Pear, Honey, and Brie Crostini
1 French baguette, sliced 1/2 inch thick
Brie cheese, thinly sliced, rind removed
2 pears, halved, cored, and thinly sliced
Fresh rosemary, finely chopped
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the baguette slices on a large baking sheet. Place one slice of cheese on each baguette slice. Bake slices in the oven for 5-7 minutes or until the brie is melted.
While the baguette slices are baking, brush the pear slices with honey and grill on each side until soft.
Place a slice of pear on top of each cheesy baguette slice. Drizzle with honey and garnish with fresh rosemary.
Enjoy, friends! Happy Autumn!
